    It's Your World (a broadcast of the World Affairs Council) Gen. Anthony Zinni on 'Before the First Shots Are Fired' After four decades of military service and countless experiences with military intervention, retired four-star General Anthony Zinni is well aware that wars are not always decided on the battlefield. Political decisions, intelligence estimates, strategies (or the lack thereof) and many other non-battlefield components have crucial significance in the outcome of war. Few Americans realize how many essential pieces have to fall in to place to execute a successful campaign. What triggers lead the U.S. to use military force, and how may these triggers be changing due to emerging global issues? Gen. Zinni is the author of "Before the First Shots Are Fired."
